    I can’t put into words how special Loretta was to me. She often commented that I looked like her when she was younger. She was a “tell it like it is” sort of woman with the kindest heart. Heaven definitely gained another angel.

    Alma (My Ma Berry), her passing leaves a great void in this world. She was a one of a kind woman. One more reason to look forward to heaven. Ma Berry treated me as one of her own from the day we met. She was the first to hold my daughter when she was born 33 years ago, she was an LPN at the hospital where she was born. The last vacation I had with her was a trip to MO with her and my Mom about 2 years ago, what an adventure it was. She always had advice to give, excuse me what I meant to say was, she never hesitated to tell you the way it was going to be. Also the first one to be there for you at any moment in time.She would tell you things that maybe weren’t so pleasant and then say there now its been said and that is the way it is. So now we just move on. I am looking forward to seeing her and RJ in heaven one day, maybe we can play a game of rummy, after I get done cleaning up after RJ on one of his projects : ) I’m praying God has a recliner waiting for her.

    I love you Ma Berry you will forever live in my heart

    One thing about Alma was if she had something on her mind it didnt stay there long She let you know what it was. She use to love to come to my house and start an argument with my husband because he would argue with her and give her a hard time and her him She love every one of my family like her own There will be no to take her place she was one of a kind love all of you too

    My dear big sister Lotetta, I know you didn’t need any more sisters but I needed just one and it was you. You came to MI when I was 12 and became a special lady to me. Lots of love, laughs , and good advice. I have so many memories of our time together. Many meals together at your house our ours. Movies and especially church and all the friends we made in our young people’s group. We know you finished your mission here on earth and we’ll meet again. Love you bunches.
